Slackstores in Europe?


Hello,

I'd like to buy some Slackware merchandise, but shipping alone is $15. Are there online shops in Belgium/The Netherlands/Europe?

Hello,

for example: http://www.linux-onlineshop.de/ or http://www.linuxkaufen.de/ or http://www.liniso.de/
they are not slackware-specific, but you will find what you are looking for.

I don't think that is what phodopus aiming at.

Indeed there is no European Slackware store, unfortunately.
And the shipping is fairly expensive...
I think it would be a good idea to start one.
Has anyone ever discussed this with Pat?

Maybe the local user groups have some local merchandise? (shirts, mugs, whatever)
Or they could organize a bigger order for several items, so that shipping is less per individual...

@markush:

I'm looking for clothing, a Slackware T-shirt would be awesome ^^. The German stores don't have the things I'm looking for... Maybe I should start using Ubuntu since it's much easier to find Ubuntu T-shirts in Europe :d

Thanks anyways for the replies & keep op Slackin'

right ... except Ubuntu t-shirts are usually lame. The only good one would say:

"Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "I can't configure Slackware"

Just stumbled upon this thread. Never knew that ubuntu was a synonym for vaseline. You live and learn.

Yeah, a Slackstore in Europe would be fine, I'd buy a few things, I'm Italian but a Slackstore in Germany or in France or in Italy wouldn't be a wrong thing, I mean, I'd buy something there and other people will do the same...Let me know!

Bye...

This will only happen if someone takes the initiative.

Maybe some consignment deal can be made for a larger order, or postponed payment.
Then some user / group can resell the items with lower shipping rates per item and shorter delivery times.

Note: I am in no way affiliated to Slackware or the Slackstore and don't even live in Europe anymore
So forgive if I'm suggesting too much, but that's all I'm doing: suggesting.

Look at this :

http://www.openbsd.org/orders.html

There's many OpenBSD resellers in europe, so why not deal with them ? The Librairie Eyrolles is very well known in France.

I could pop-open a shirt-n-merchandise store ( location: The Netherlands ), but remember that shipping nation-wide is 'cheap', but cross-border, european wide(e.a. The Netherlands -> Germany or The Netherlands -> Italy) will be quite costly.
That, and the fact that there are a gazillion different online-payment facilities probably makes a small-euro-slack-store quite a big adventure.
Remember: Creditcard payment is (at least in The Netherlands) not the standard way of paying. It's " Ideal " in The Netherlands, or (internationally a bit better accepted) paypal, but they will charge big time.

And, it might even be cheaper to get our own Euro-Slack shirts printed, than have them shipped over from the States where customs might/will interfere.
Problem of 'Euro-Slack' c/would be, how to tell if the quality is garan-T-eed to the high Slack-standards

If Pat is okay with it, I could start with a little black/n/white vinyl 'decal' (sticker) or T-shirt? I've got some experience with getting small batches of T-shirt / Hoody's / Polo-shirts ( clubwise )
